Dennis David

A petty officer in the Medical Service Corps stationed at Bethesda Naval Medical Center, David was serving as the chief of the day of the medical school on November 22, 1963. He recalled the president’s casket arriving at the back of the hospital before Jackie Kennedy’s arrival at the front of the hospital, which has become a point of controversy among researchers. On Monday, David had the opportunity to briefly examine photographs and film of the president’s autopsy. Recorded June 26, 2007.
